Winning Appliances is the only Australian finalist in the 2020 Outstanding Store Design >1200sqm category of the World Retail Awards for its Flagship Richmond showroom.
It is the second time a Winning Appliances showroom has been shortlisted in these Awards with the Flagship Redfern showroom a finalist in 2014.
Winning Group CEO, John Winning said the company is excited and proud to have the Flagship Richmond showroom recognised globally alongside some of the world’s best stores.
“We have a company mission to provide the best shopping experience in the world and our Flagship Richmond showroom offers customers a unique multisensory customer experience, including a culinary experience centre that sits at the heart of the showroom,” he said.
“The showroom symbolises our passion to provide an unrivalled customer experience and the world’s best and exclusive brands, including The Galley, Kalamazoo, and Fhiaba. It’s designed to allow customers to imagine what the appliances will look like in their dream kitchen, in different styles, rather than just the products themselves.”
Designed by Melbourne-based studio Cera Stribley Architects, the Flagship Richmond showroom features a unique culinary theatre where the dedicated Culinary Team demonstrates cooking results from appliances; exclusive and premium appliance offerings and state-of-the-art displays; three lifestyle kitchens to provide inspiration for the home cook, right through to the masterchef and entertainer, as well as a uniquely designed homely aesthetic with furnishings and finishing touches encompassing the design of a contemporary home.
